J.Crew Spring/Summer 2013 - Page 34

post #496 of 983
Is there a noticeable difference with Thinsulate lining? I picked up the topcoat in store today, but am curious as to whether or not I'd be better off with the Thinsulate.

Gents, a lot of the Ludlow suiting is 30% off... I'm wearing the houndstooth one right now at work. I will continue to promote these. I get a size 42 blazer and size 34 pant... The only alterations needed are:
1) Shortening of sleeves of blazer
2) Letting out pant waist by 0.5 inches
3) If the pant legs are 32, getting them shortened. If they are 30, no shortening needed
Alterations for me are free (cardholder) and done within a few days.

At $525 on sale, these suits are very good IMO. Hassle free, spot on fit, versatile for work and for fun. I wish the navy worsted were on sale, I'd get that one as well.

I almost never see matching tops and bottoms on sale though otherwise I'd give it a shot.

Purchased the Broadmoor quilted camo vest in-store with the 30% off...

 

I would have waited but the online store didn't even carry a XS.

I got it a couple of weeks ago. I'm usually a medium (6'/190) in most shirts, but I size down to a small for outerwear. This was no exception.

 

I actually found the fit a bit larger than their other outerwear - it was a bit boxy, and I had to take it to my tailor to get it taken in at the sides (I also may have to get the sleeves slimmed a bit in the future). Although it's 100% wool, the wool is a bit of lighter weight than more traditional toggle coats (it's also fully unlined) I've worn, so it may not suffice as a pure, heavy-duty winter coat on the coldest of cold days. I think the detailing is fine, but I also wear the jacket casually, and find the length just a bit too long, although I definitely prefer a shorter jacket. Also, a very minor gripe (and I recognize this is an untraditional detail), but I am sometimes frustrated that there are no pockets to put my hands in while walking. There are two front flap pockets (which I actually prefer to the classic patch pocket), but an additional set of pockets would have been helpful for me in terms of keeping my hands warm. Overall, the color is beautiful, the detailing is great (my tailor commented on the jacket's quality, at least), and aside from a bit of a boxy cut and length issues, I'd recommend it, especially at its current sale price.
